Bar Skills Course Description:
Gain essential bartender skills and elevate your opportunities in hospitality, with the ITS Bar Skills Course.
Conducted over 2 evenings (or sometimes during the day), this hands-on training is regularly available at several convenient locations, including Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. This course is run in real clubs or hotels where we have arrangements to use their Bar and facilities.
Join like-minded aspiring bartenders in a relaxed and friendly environment. This is your opportunity to kick start your career with valuable bar and table service skills, and important hygiene knowledge.
Getting your RSA is one thing; but experience is highly regarded in this fast-paced industry. Taking the initiative to receive accredited hands-on training in a real bar environment will help you land that first job.
Bartender Skills Course Format:
Day One: Hands-on skills training behind the bar
Day Two: Bar Skills knowledge training
In-person RSA or RSG training (select preference on enrolment)
Already have your RSA & RSG but need to gain some skills?
No problem. You can opt to enrol in day one of any bar skills course without the RSA/RSG component.
The course was very helpful and has improved my understanding and knowledge even more.
Bar Skills Course Accreditation
Our bar skills course format includes several units from the Certificate II in Hospitality, which are accredited by the National Training framework.
- Use hygienic practices for for food safety (SITXFSA001)
- Responsible service of alcohol (SITHFAB002) or
- Responsible gambling services (SITHGAM001)
Upon completion of the two day course you will receive your QLD RSA or RSG certificate, and a Statement of Attainment (partial completion Certificate II in Hospitality Food and Beverage).
Enjoy hands-on practical training behind the bar in real clubs or hotels in Brisbane, Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. ITS trainers will help you develop the skills and confidence you need for the workplace. The practical bar skills training on day one of the course is non accredited and is designed to give pure hands on training over the time frame without getting slowed down by the theory which will be in much longer courses offered by other providers.
